Unplanned Classroom Language and Teacher Training.
Cadorath, Jill; Harris, Simon
ELT Journal, v52 n3 p188-96 Jul 1998
Transcripts of classroom interaction illustrate how emphasis on lesson planning and communicative activities in English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) teacher training, and dominance of a coursebook, had unintended consequences in three specific areas, leading to inhibition of teacher-student interaction, avoidance of genuine communicative opportunities in unplanned language, and loss of local knowledge/experience as discussion topics.
